I'm going to guess Terry Bozzio but I'm really not sure on that one.

Goodness knows where in the memory banks the original answer came from...

So questions 1, 3, 5, 7, 8 and 10 have been answered correctly. That leaves:

2) Zildjian in Turkish roughly translates to _________.

- While "cymbal smith" is correct, there's more to the translation than that. Can anyone figure it out?

4) the first issue of Modern Drummer NOT to feature a drummer on its cover had what instead? (be specific)

- "a drum set" isn't going to be good enough to get a correct answer. C'mon guys, what is it???

6) which of the following is NOT considered a rudiment? a. eggbeaters b. book report c. malf d. nanny-ta-ta e. plutnduh

- there are only 5 possible answers here, yet no one has guessed correctly.

9) on the main Drummerworld site (not the discussion forum), whenever you see the “master list” of Top 500 Drummers along the left side of the page, two drummers are listed twice. Which two?

- while Ringo is correct, "Ringo" and "Ringo Starr" do not count as two separate drummers. Who's the other drummer to be listed twice???

"ian" means "son of". Zildjian translates, literally, into "son of a cymbal maker".
